Discovery Tribute

by NASA

Published October 28, 2010


Discovery's celebrated spaceflight career began in 1984 with the STS-41D mission. Collected in this gallery are stunning photographs dating back to the early days of NASA's most experienced orbiter. The tribute pictured here hangs in Firing Room 4 of the Launch Control Center at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Discovery is shown circled by its 39 mission patches -- including the patch for its final planned flight, STS-133. The background image was taken from the Hubble Space Telescope, which launched aboard Discovery on STS-31 and serviced by Discovery on STS-82 and STS-103. The American flag and bald eagle represent Discovery's role in returning American astronauts to space with the STS-26 and STS-114 missions. Graphic design credit: NASA/Amy Lombardo. NASA publication number: SP-2010-08-164-KSC
